7:41 am
promise their voters they would do. that's what that is. they are going as well as they can. the first day as we said something different than willie brown. i immediately agreed. my voters would have to say, i didn't do what i promised to do. >> what if what you promise to do is after you sit down and see the facts and it isn't the right way to go. what do you do politically? >> for me i naturally try to get that information out there but also let the public is certainly everybody looking at the budget process understand the change of circumstances we face. for me but it has always been kind of a process where you don't really hide. >> it seems to me the question is, republicans say, we can't give on taxes until you reduce spending. democrats are saying, but you reduce spending until the go on taxes. if i agreed to raise taxes, i
7:42 am
don't believe mr. obama is going to cut spending. if we don't raise taxes, you get your way. >> and i think mayor brown is absolutely right. those are positions that they take relative to their constituents. it's all about getting compromised. it's all about what it is that we can still be able to walk up and say, i've got something for you. >> let me tell you, you can solve the problems they are facing by what we call the trigger. that is that if in the first quarter x number of dollars to come in, cuts go. quickly. however, if x number of dollars to come in, taxes go differently. so you can clearly have trigger devices. >> absolutely. >> it's still a few hours. >> they cannot make everybody were in the meantime. if you are worried about getting around this weekend, you are going to have some issues.

7:47 am
people were bringing them left and right. >> we have a culture of, if i can buy it, it's mine. i have a right to have it without really consideration for the larger public good. it was really stunning the number of guns that came in. rifles, shotguns, fully automatic weapons, pistols. it is stunning. >> the people bringing in these guns not necessarily the game vendors that might be shooting people up. will that really affect violence on the streets? >> we certainly have young people who have guns because they don't feel safe. we had three young people come in with the one done that they owned collectively to collect the $200 to split it. there is an economic incentive. it was next. there was a lot of senior citizens by brought their guns as well. >> any gun that is out there can get in the hands of somebody. burglary rates are really high. you have been working with youth in oakland for a number of years. this isn't the first time we've had this kind of discussion.
7:48 am
i'm interested. when did that change happen? when did it become standard for kids and young adults to start grabbing guns? now the gun is the first reach. what happened? >> the crack epidemic still reverberate through our community. the war on drugs really was about moving away whole organized crime structures. it was successful. it's sort of destroying an organized crime. but it left is whoever can control. so young people began being recruited to actually be watch people and then when the people who employed them went away, they became the drug dealers. now that drugs are gone, that's really a primary source of underground economy. young people literally feel afraid for their lives. >> there were a few different things about this gun buyback.
7:49 am
there was cash given instead of gift cards, and the gun that you turned in how to be a working gun or your bottom line, the turnout was unprecedented for you to what do you attribute that? >> he had to be a resident of the city. you couldn't come from someplace else and bring it on. i think it's a combination of things. people really do need the money. cash counts. people really were devastated about sandy hook. and a third thing is, i think that people really are sick of the homicide rate. i think that people are sick of the fact that people are being shot and killed. spirit i want to go back to what you set a little while ago that the kids now are afraid that they are going to be a target. >> absolutely. >> so they are buying the guns and then they take out the person they feel is a threat. >> or they are buying the guns to keep themselves safe. when you really talk to young
7:50 am
people with him high impact neighborhoods, i think there is an allusion in our country that if i'm safe, it doesn't matter. it doesn't want happen -- doesn't matter what happens in another neighborhood. these people don't feel safe walking back and forth to school. they are buying guns to get themselves back-and-forth to school. sometimes people are attacking them and they feel obligated to protect themselves. >> when you are using a gun to use that, you are at a level where nobody is going to walk away okay. >> no one is going to walk away. >> let's have you back to continue this discussion. thank you for being here. we'll be right back.

forecast. you see that today's wet. monday for the most part we are drying out. tuesday afternoon into wednesday, that's when another storm system significantly less powerful than this one coming in tuesday into wednesday. then drying out thursday into this weekend. that's a check of your seven day forecast. back to you guys. >> the next big deal for tv. a big brother like accessory. verizon introducing over us and selects that feature what allows the company to share its customers information with advertisers. the company has filed a patent for a dvr that has a camera and a microphone. the camera would record information like how many people are watching what and when to deliver targeted ads. a product like that has not yet been invented. the question is, do these new patents crossed the line when it comes to your right to privacy? statement would have a professor who's joining us again. good morning. i find this absolutely fascinating. the idea that big brother is now
8:13 am
little brother and be used to be fighting to keep privacy from invading our homes. now we are welcoming it with open arms. >> this privacy notion was always a strong wind. your home is your castle. our castle walls are being breached. this type of technology is amazing example. >> this is something that people would have to choose. you would have to turn it on. it's not just going to leak into your household. >> imagine everyone who is offering this type of service. your television, your xbox, anything connected to the internet. this is the way they all do business? would you really say, i'm not going to play any internet games. >> i find it fascinating. we had phone lines before. i don't recall the phone company selling your information of who you called to advertisers or to
8:14 am
somebody else or the conscience of your calls -- or the content of your calls. now people are signing away their privacy rights in return for a gimmick. >> part of the problem is that we have a patchwork of privacy laws. there are some very strong laws related to what you can do and what you can. we don't have a strong laws related to consumers and these types of devices. you are right. people are signing away a lot of privacy, including their image and who they are and what they are doing in their home. this is a very different type of invasion than we saw before. >> these are the kind of flavors you just signed to do things like instagram. >> nobody reads them. or you rare read read them through. and then you have the instagram situation. saying they might sell your photographs as an appetizer? >> i think that people think about the images and they have a very different type of reaction.
8:15 am
think about those new airport systems in which you get an image going through the safety. all the uproar that happen for that. there is no national security issue about who is playing xbox or who is watching tv in my living room. >> if you are agreeing to these things, you are signing away your privacy, right? >> absolutely. >> when she done not, is there a way to get it back? >> i suppose you could take the thing out of your house. >> the company would say, you can turn it off. even after user service if you don't want to. do you ever read those? >> no, i don't. >> i don't have time to read them. >> do you think there will be any move to try to address the privacy concern on the new technology, or is that just so strong end of the program so popular? >> the thing is they are moving so quickly it seems. so it's hard for things to move
8:16 am
quickly. >> from a legal perspective, some of the courts have said that when you plug into the internet, you give up your privacy. i hope that these kinds of devices will make them think again. when i walk out of my street, i don't walk out in my birthday suit. does that mean i can't do that in my home anymore because they may be taking a picture of me? >> before new laws come into place, which are in the works but you all know how congress moves come in the meantime, it's every man for himself. >> we have to be careful what we allow to come into our living room. >> be thinking about that. it's a two-way street sometime. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
8:17 am
8:18 am
don't forget to check out t raiders this morning... you can see all in another live look at our hd doppler. you can see the rain coming down across the bay area. more behind it. the have more details in the forecast coming up. and don't forget to check out the raiders this morning.
8:19 am
perhaps a good idea to just stay home when the weather is like this. you see the action of the raiders take on the panthers starting at 10:00 a.m. that's followed by the fifth quarter. >> we've seen a big response to gun buyback event in the bay area in recent days. that's after the shootings in newtown. that's fired up to the debate about gun control measures as well. here in san francisco, mayor ed lee proposing to laws, one that would ban hollow. bullets outright and another that notices law enforcement when someone buys 500 rounds or more of any type of ammunition. we turn to santa cisco police chief. the first question is on gun control. is it substantive, or are we picking the low hanging fruit by going after the assault rifles? >> this is a no-brainer stuff to reinstitute an assault man to ban the weapon that just kill 20 children. on the list of hundred that would be banned, it's a start.
8:20 am
and the discussion needs to be had. >> what do you think the next up should be? in its an organization by title. would like to see the banning of internet sales. would like to see face to face in person sales only. would love to see a national registry of who is buying guns. we'd love to see there be some sort of a profile on folks that are buying guns, may be awaiting. >> the connecticut shooting, that is the exception. the real sadness to a lot of people is the daily shootings that go on on the streets in the bay area. this gun legislation wouldn't touch most of the guns involved in that, correct? >> guns shouldn't be lying around. we've got a lot of guns that are in homes that are used, that are in closets. people can turn those in any time. >> where would you like to see the discussion go? >> there is two pieces to this. there is the gun side. that's the supply side of the
8:21 am
